PMc’s Caramel Cobbler
- First of all, I recommend real butter for this dessert. The caramel sauce will not cook correctly with a substitute.
- However, you can substitute all-purpose flour for self-rising flour. To make your own, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. You will need to adjust this ratio for the amount called for in this recipe.
- You can use whole milk, 1% or 2%. Typically, I use 2% milk.

So decadent and delicious! I will definitely be making this again.
The cobbler was so easy to make! Love this!
I make a chocolate cobbler that looks so similar to this recipe. I couldn’t resist trying it. It’s SOOOO good! A sweet taste of fall. Our weekend company swooned when I set this on the table with vanilla ice cream. We’ll be serving this easy dessert, again. Thank you for the recipe!

How do you make the chocolate cobbler?

This was awesome! Made and served with vanilla ice cream. Yummy, Yummy, in my tummy! Took it to a church potluck, everyone loved it! Thank you, Paula for sharing your recipes. I will be trying lots more!
Delicious! I always think of cobblers as needing fruit, but this is amazing.
This truly is heaven in a dish! My kiddos couldn’t get enough.
So sweet and gooey…my family loved it!!
Jean Willsom says
This cobbler was absolutely wonderful, and so easy! Now my husband wants me to try the peach pecan version.
Thank you. Try just the Pecan Cobbler too. 😉 It’s my favorite of all of them.
I made this Christmas morning because my husband loves all things caramel and we had all the ingredients on hand. Cobblers are one of my favorite desserts because they’re easy and taste amazing. This caramel cobbler is phenomenal! I’ve found that some of the best dishes require the simplest ingredients. This is one of those. My daughter talked me into making another one yesterday lol!
Thank you!! I agree. Plus, I don’t have much patience so EASY is awesome. 😉
This was absolutely wonderful! My entire family loved this cobbler, and that’s saying something. Thank you for sharing!
Yay!!! I’m so happy you like it!
Why so many pictures of the same thing?
This was delicious. I get the part wanting to keep eating and eating. I added sugar cookie creamer instead of milk was worried it might mess it up but it was still delicious. Will definitely keep this recipe. Thank you
Thanks you so very much this looks great.
My Aunt Ruth made this dessert. She called it stickies. She is older now and could not recall the recipe. Thank you.
I made this tonight. My daughter and I both thought it needed something. Was kind of dry. Daughter made a confection sugar drizzle and it was better. Next time are thinking of making apple pie filling and fold it in. That would be awesome. It taste great tho. Thanks for sharing….
DO i use peaches in the caramel cobbler
No the caramel cobbler is fruit-free. I have this version for an apple cobbler: https://www.callmepmc.com/best-caramel-apple-cobbler/
and this version for a peach cobbler (you can omit the pecans): https://www.callmepmc.com/peach-pecan-cobbler/
Do you used salted or unsalted butter?
Hi Jennifer, I use salted butter.
Brilliant. I did it with only a cup of sugar in the batter, though and it was still PLENTY sweet. Served it to people who have had lots of desserts in this life, and they said it was the best they ever had.
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed it

Hello, that recipe sounds scrumptious! Uuummmm ! Now here’s my simple question. Can you add a can of fruit to thus recipe? Like peaches or apples? Even blackberries? I can just taste the yummy caramel with the fruit! What do you think? I think I’m going to try it!
Just made this but used butter milk…I ended up adding more like a cup of it but it was AMAZING!
Paula, I noticed your Snickerdoodle Cobbler, Caramel Cobbler, and Pecan Cobbler are all virtually the same recipe, except you add pecans to the Pecan Cobbler. Wouldn’t it have been more straightforward to present a single recipe with a pecan variation? The only difference I saw between Snickerdoodle and Caramel was slightly more butter in the Caramel one. Really?? Am I missing something?
I have a depression Era recipe for caramel dumplings. So I can absolutely taste this.
Going to make for Church dinner, going to add apples, I believe it will be delicious!!
Is 3/4 cup milk accurate? I’ve made this a few times with 3/4 cup milk and I have a stiff dough, not a batter. Given the other recipes I use for quick cobbler, I’ve been making this 1 1/2 cup milk instead. It turns out, but I keep guessing when I show people this recipe.
Also, every single time I’ve made this, I’ve gotten one small serving out of each one… Everyone eats it before I get back to it.. This is an awesome recipe!
This is great! I fool myself thinking it is low cal! I top it with Vanilla Frozen Yogurt! This is perfect for summer or winter!
Made this for dinner tonight. Shared it with the neighbors. Thumbs up all around. Soooo unbelievably easy but the payoff is huge! Definitely going in my “Keeper” binder!
Thank you for sharing! It’s really delicious, and everyone had seconds. I might have done something wrong, though, because I had to double the amount of milk to get my batter to be the consistency of that in the picture. I reduced the amount of water, and it was delicious! I will be trying the pecan cobbler next.
Could you half this recipe to make it in an 8×8 pan?
the recipe can out fine halved, also added pecans, yummy!!!
I found this recipe on pinterest today-and made it for hubby, he loves caramel. I put a dish together for him, as he was leaving the kitchen he made a u-turn and took more cobbler. I don’t think the cobbler is going to last to long 🙂
Yay! I’m so happy you guys liked it! Yeah, it doesn’t last long. It only last 2 days at my house and I’m the only one that eats it! 🙂
PMc, whooping up a batch of this right now during the Cowboy football game (yeah, their winning) I got a sweet tooth for cobbler just now but didn’t have any fruit. Then I remembered this. I’ve made it once before and OMG. Almost everybody has stuff for this in the pantry, and man, is it good. Thanks for the recipe. LOVE it!!!
Ha, been watching the game too! Hope you enjoy it, wish I had some, I’ve been craving something seet all day!
Do you refrigerate leftovers, or is it safe to leave out?
I would refrigerate them. I have actually left it on the counter for a couple of days, but I feel better about refrigerating. It usually doesn’t last long enough to have to keep for very long 🙂
Ok. I made it yesterday and it was very good. We refrigerated it, but there’s not much left. Thanks!
You’re so welcome, I’m glad you enjoy it!
Hi I was trying to figure out what size baking dish you used. Have a family picnic tomorrow going to try it …looks delicious!
9×13 inch. Sorry I didn’t realize it wasn’t in the instructions
Oh, my! I made this last night, and it was SO yummy! My family devoured it and asked for it again tonight. It’s so easy and quick to make. Love, love, love this recipe. It’s my new go-to dessert, especially when I’m in a hurry and really want to impress. Thanks for sharing!
It’s my favorite too! Can you believe how easy it is?? Too easy, I make it too often. lol. I’m so glad you and your family enjoyed it!

That recipe sounds wonderful. If I were to use regular flour do you know how much salt and baking soda/ powder i should add?
If you use 1 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, add 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the recipe. Hope you enjoy it, let me know how it turns out!
Kimberly L says
Looks great! I have to bring a dessert to a party Friday and don’t have much time for anything too fancy. This looks great! Do you think adding some sea salt would work? I’m loving the salted caramel right now..:
I haven’t done much with sea salt, I know it’s all the rage right now, but I’m just not familiar with it. Maybe a sprinkle on top. I think you’ll really be happy with this dessert though, it’s one of my very favorites! Hope they enjoy it!

Boy does this look delicious! I love caramel. Recently I have wanted to eat caramel, but I've stopped myself from buying it. LOL. I'm pinning this for future reference. I've added your blog to my reading list and followed on social media. I'd love for you to check out my blog and follow back. I host a Monday Party that I'd like you to link up to.
Have a great day!
I made this twice… first time it turned out great and second time it was a flop. Trying again tonight because it was soooooo worth the effort when it turned out the first time.
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says
